The Bologna Process has brought about a series of important reforms in Higher Education with emphasis on introducing flexible learning pathways and supporting life-long learning of professionals. Furthermore, health and education are amongst the most important social and economic resources in contemporary Europe as in the rest of the world, and both are facing very substantial transformation process. Accordingly, the current healthcare education system is coping with a wide-spectrum of challenges, the most notable of which including ever increasing skill-and-training requirements for healthcare graduates and innovation in many fields.

With these developments in mind, WEBWISE project (No: 510453-LLP-1-2010-1-DE-ERASMUS-EMHE, European Pogramme: Lifelong learning Programme; Erasmus Modernisation of Higher Education) brings together a range of European higher education institutions active in the field of public health education as well as experts for innovating e-learning, to analyze and experiment as to how highly innovative pedagogical approaches and tools can maximize the effectiveness, quality and accessibility of various public health related programs.

The approach of WEBWISE is to position analysis and the introduction of pedagogic innovation within the framework Learning Scenarios: an overarching concept that embraces all the key elements that, together, constitute a specific instance, period, programme or course of learning. The main aim of the project is to review and test the effectiveness of various pedagogies and, especially, Web 2.0 tools within diverse Learning Scenarios and assess their effectiveness, applicability and transferability thus, supporting the effective adoption of these improvements within Higher Education System.
